I need a better camera than just my phone :rolleyes: and make sure to carry it each time I go past the window...in-case there's pictures to be taken

The fawn was checking everything out. First time I've seen such a curious fawn, he or she was so cute :inlove:
That's awesome. I love wildlife. Used to hunt and realized I enjoyed watching nature more than I like shooting it. So I quit hunting.

I always thought the best hunting was with a camera, not a gun. :)

I don't remember Dan posting a single beach picture with the sun shining.....:)
Well, we're in summer heading for fall... he's in the depths of winter heading into spring, and given his location in Australia, he's a bit closer to Antarctica that I would ever wanna be. :D

Also, cloudy, stormy skies make more dramatic pics than just peaceful blue with fluffy white clouds. :D

Porch is almost complete. Don't know if it should be painted or sealed :question:
Decided to go with a ramp...easier for my mom to walk up it :)...just in-case something should happen...growing old...ready for a wheelchair.


Hopefully, next year will be a new awning and gutters

Seal it with a semi transparent or semi solid deck stain. Paint on a high traffic floor is not a good idea. Sherwin Williams has a fantastic product called SuperDeck.

I own and operate a painting business, and love finishing decks. That one in your pictures looks really nice. Please don't paint it. Stain is your friend. And easy to apply. Brush it on with a 4 inch deck brush, one coat and done. Should last longer and look better than painting. If that wood is pressure treated, it needs to weather for at least 6 months before applying a finish or sealer otherwise it will reject anything applied.

Thank you :)
I was leaning towards sealing it. I like the look of natural wood, so I'll go with semi transparent.

I would go semi trans as well considering that wood is new, and has great color and grain to it. Use a quality deck wash after it has weathered, before you stain/ seal it, it will look beautiful and last better than any porch or floor enamel.

It is pressure treated. I knew it needed to dry out (weathered) before doing anything, just didn't know for how long. Thank you very much for helping me !

I definitely wouldn't paint paint it. You'd be painting it forever. I'd use a clear Thompson's or Flood product on it. Easy to apply, you can use a bug sprayer then roll any excess. Whatever you get, spraying it on is much easier.

While spraying is easier, nothing will get the sealer or stain into the wood the way a brush will. Spraying, you still need to back brush, to push product into the wood to help penetration, otherwise you are just "throwing" product at the surface with a sprayer. Without proper brushing, your chances of product failure greatly increase.

The 2 products I recommended penetrate weathered raw wood without brushing it.
